DRS takes over Boston


Last week, for the first time in DRS history, three grades traveled together on grade-wide trip to Boston. The Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors all left early Wednesday morning for an exciting, fun-filled, and meaningful excursion. The trip included stops at the Basketball Hall of Fame, a Celtics Game, a tour of Fenway Park, Ice Skating, and a Blue Man Group show. One of the highlights of the trip was visiting the Kever of R’ Yosef Dov Soloveitchik, most famously known as “The Rav.” R’ Soloveitchik was the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva University, where many DRS Rabbeim spent years learning in the YU Beis Medrash. Rashi, in Parshas BaMidbar, explains that when one teaches a student Torah, the student is likened to the teacher’s own son. The Rabbeim explained to the students that Rav Soloveitchik was in a sense their great-grandfather. Over the trip, the students got a real chance to bond with their friends and Rabbeim. The excitement from the trip was incredible, and we look forward to bringing that excitement into our Adar celebrations in DRS as well.
